Shoed a Blue Horse Today!

So I'm putting together a nifty package to be auctioned at the American Cancer Society Casino Night in Lakeland, FL next Friday. I'll have hand made goodies and a nice stash full of letterpress cards and such which should be a nice variety i think. They'll be a big Amy Butler fabric bag, an owl tote, a colored pencil roll-up case and then a plush toy horse - which I made today! He's blue and cream and as cute as his little button eyes! I took a series of pictures planning out the pattern and cutting and sewing and stuffing - seeing as how I'd never made a toy horse before. All the parts and pieces were planned out in my head, just had to take some time to plan and figure out how to get him just the way i pictured him. Am hoping he will make a child very happy!

Here's my paper pattern that I cut two of, ears, shoes are sewn on, button eyes and tail. The mane is beneath the rotary cutter. and started with fabric and a sheet of paper to draw the pattern.

Ears, shoes, mane and tail stitched to one side so they wont slip when the two main sides are sewn...

Sewn, but flat...

Stuffed and hand stitching the belly...

Sewing on the button eyes...

All done!
